Calamus (Sweet Flag) - Acorus calamus americanus

Perennial. Perennial monocot–a water plant. This cultivar is a low beta asarone strain originally from the northern prairie states. This plant was widely disseminated and naturalized into many new environs by the Native Americans, who made great use of it as in basketry. Traditional usage (Native American, TWM, Ayurveda): bitter and aromatic digestive, against tobacco or drug addiction, to sharpen the mind, a low-dose botanical. After chewing a bit of calamus, water never tasted better.

You can use calamus between ponds in waterways, as it filters and cleanses the water that runs through it. Can be used similarly in greywater treatment areas.
